Sure, after voting for it you might delete it.  I think decisions of this type should have been made much earlier in the proceedings.

Don't worry too much about it. I'm not deleting anything.

I should revisit Schmidt’s symphonies. He’s a composer that has been pushed to the wayside for too long.

Schmidt has interesting music that perhaps doesn't appeal to some immediately. However, I think his symphonies don't disappoint (I have some mixed feelings with the 3rd, though).

Now:

I also have that set but do not remember it in any detail other than liking it. Perhaps when I complete my Pettersson and Melartin cycles I will revisit this set.

It would be good!

Interesting that the Scarlatti-Cube is getting so much love. I'm honestly not sure if I might not disqualify it at some point, for being too much of a box... because this shifts the definition of the greatest RECORDING ever made more to the greatest recording ACHIEVEMENT. Jury's still out.

Bruckner does this in his Second, Third (original version), and Fifth symphonies as well, with the passage in the Fifth's finale modeled most closely on Beethoven's, merely replacing the cellos and basses with the clarinet.

I was aware of this in the Fifth, but I didn't know he did in in the Second and Third Symphonies as well. Then again, I haven't listened to them anywhere near as much as the Fifth.

Ah, HELL, this is evenly spread, except for the no-love Rogg AOTF.  ;D Gimme some clarity, voters.

Deal at Amazon.fr

Quite curious about his live Bruckner!

I don't like catch-all sets, but that sure contains a LOOOOOOT of goodness. Indeed, greatness. The live Bruckner - esp. Berlin but also Hamburg. The Berlin Schubert. The NDR Schubert 5.
I think I have all the recording except the Schumann, I think... and it's quite something. (Though I do prefer the studio Brahms over the live recordings, if not by much.)
